we went back to the pediatrician this morning to have the girl checked out. we were there a week ago because the doctor wanted to make sure she wasn't snorting anymore. at that point she had lost some weight and was down to exactly six pounds. this morning? she was up to 7lbs 1oz. according to the doctor, newborns at this age are supposed to gain an ounce a day. she's ahead by 10 ounces! in one week she jumped from being in the 10th percentile for weight to being in the 25th percentile. so, she may not be snorting anymore, but she's still our little piggy!
i'll be using our pink chick cushion every week to show how much she's grown -- thanks to lily's rooster once again for making it!
p.s. her umbilical cord came off yesterday and fell on the floor. we wouldn't have known had JR not stepped on it.
